Description: I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long...
I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long established, always full and really good value. It is located in a small side street just behind the harbour road, next to Lisa's Place and the Harbour Lights Bar. It is a traditional family run taverna which cooks either fresh for you, from the Souvlaki Grill or from a number of pre-cooked dishes which you can view in the kitchen. The prices are really good too. And because it is always busy it has a good atmosphere - Ok the views aren't as good as the harbour side, but you can eat well here for value and then go for a walk and drink at the harbour later.

We have visited Paxos several times and always eat at Alexandros more than anywhere else on our visits. The food is delicious traditional Greek dishes, Alexandros and his wife are friendly and welcoming and the location is a little away from the more hectic tavernas. Our favourite Lakka restaurant by far - and the best value. We travelled with friends... More

This restaurant serves top quality food which is cooked to perfection. Have eaten there more than a few times and we have never been disappointed. Alexandros and his wife obviously take pride and pleasure serving excellent food at very reasonable prices.

Enjoyed several meals here in July 2014. Friendly service and good food which you can go and choose in the kitchen. In its own quiet corner in the centre of Lakka would recommend for its range of typical Greek dishes.

Alexandros and Ourania must be the perfect hosts. We ate at this charming little eatery a few times and had delicious food each time. Just off the beaten track, you could easily miss it, but once you have been, you will go back! Absolutely no pretensions here....what you see is what you get.

Husband and wife team serving traditional Greek food. Set just behind the waters front in a quiet square. Upon arrival we were whisked into the kitchen to be shown a table bearing all the dishes to be served that evening, moussaka, beef, lamb, rabbit all cooked in various ways and wonderful vegetables. Wine served in jugs but perfectly reasonable. Very... More

Lovely family run restaurant in a quiet square behind the seafront. Excellent homemade food and super staff. Loved the stuffed aubergine and I'm not a vegetarian! Delicious rabbit, not often on a Paxos menu and all the usual beef,lamb and chicken dishes, beautifully prepared. So tasty! The lady of the house couldn't be more helpful! Her Mum and Dad in...

Small portions, items on menu not served. Dirty cutlery. A lot better places to eat in this vicinity - avoid at all costs.

Alexandros is "hidden" in a quiet narrow street near the port and we saw it by accident. It looked more home-like and we decided to give it a try - we were pleasantly surprised when the waitress offered us to see the cooked food before we order it. All the cooked meals from the menu were displayed in large baking... More
